Who We Are

As a psychologist practice based in Townsville, North Queensland, we specialise in the emotional wellbeing of families and children.

Is your family struggling with challenging behaviours or changing circumstances? Do you have concerns about your child or teenager’s performance at school?

Learning about and dealing with the world around them can be difficult and confusing at times for children. Sometimes children, and their families, need a little extra support.

We are dedicated to understanding and nurturing every child and adolescent that comes into our care, whatever learning, behavioural, emotional or social issues they may have.

Our principal psychologist Jutta Dempsey is an educational psychologist with over 30 years experience working with children and families.

We provide psychological and educational assessments, diagnosis and counselling for children, Adolescents and Adults in a range of difficulties including:

  • Learning Disorders (including assessment for dyslexia)
  • Anger Management
  • Oppositional Defiance Disorder
  • ADHD
  • CAPD
  • Autism & Aspergers
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Grief
  • Self Esteem Issues
  • Social & Interpersonal Problems

We work with the children who come into our care through both one-on-one counselling and group workshops. Part of our work may involve using the latest techniques in Neurofeedback that enable us to ‘retrain’ the brain to function more effectively.
